Official Tasting Notes
Nose - Sweet, creamy vanilla, with hints of ginger. Spiced mulled wine and pear.
Palate - Rich, creamy, silky-smooth. Warm, rich oak and sherry sweetness, full mouth feel, raisins and soft fruits.
Finish - Spicy with medium length and a dry finish.
"Offers a sweet nose of christmas cake fresh from the oven with vanilla and ginger notes.Smooth and creamy on the palate, with sherry, soft oak,sultana,raisin,almond and spice. The finish is lengthy,dry and nutty."
One of the very best entry level sherry influenced single malts money can buy in our opinion.
92 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
"An astonishingly beautiful malt despite the fact that a rogue sherry butt has come in under the radar. But for that, this would have been a mega scorer: potentially an award winner. Fault or no fault, seriously worth discovering this bottling of this too long undiscovered great distillery."
